Last Crusade is the best of the original trilogy... it's Temple of Doom that should be lost.
With Star Wars' Blu-ray and 3D conversions out of the way, Lucasfilm has turned to George's other creation: the Indiana Jones movies. All four will be coming to Blu-ray in the Autumn, distributor Paramount has said - a first for the first three films in the quartet and, some might say, the only ones worth watching. We …
your reality sir is lies and balderdash and i'm glad to say i have no grasp of it.
Raiders is obviously the best and anyone who disagrees is blatantly wrong.
Crusade is a close second, the plot, the pacing, the dialogue, it's all perfect.
Temple is third. It's alright, but whatsherface and the kid are just annoying.
and Skulls is best forgotten.
A nice thought, but I wonder how many people would actually open that fourth box to find the apology in the first place....
If you've seen the movie, you'll understand the extraterrestrial connection. If you haven't seen it - don't bother. Really, don't.
Shirley you mean: Dum de dum daaa, dum de daaa, dum de dum daaa, dum de daa daa daaa.
Which, if you decode the Dums and Des as Dits and the Daas as....... well, Daas, translates as VUV2 in Morse code.
Now all I have to do is find some way of connecting VUV2 to some fake moon landings and I'm set for the weekend. :-D
NURSE!! I'VE LOST MY TIN FOIL HAT AGAIN!!
He's right, you know. I fondly remember watching "Close Encounters" when I was a wide-eyed youngster. Recently I re-watched the movie and came very quickly to the conclusion that every single character in the movie is incredibly annoying, with the possible exception of the French guy.
It was awful, just awful.
somehow got stuck with starwars now gotta find Indie to hear what it's tune is like !!!
me likes in this order 1, 3 ,,,,,,,,2
there was a 4th one apparently? thanks to mind wipe services ltd it's been erased, - the trama was too great to keep on living with... I'm to refrain from ever attempting to watch that pack of shite ever again.. !!
The pacing, the dialog, the interplay between Jones Jr and Jones Snr, the humour, the adventure, the action, the globe trotting, all without losing a real sense of place in time and geography - it is all absolutely spot on.
So what if Jones Jr is off his game. What CRUSADE reveals to us is the importance to Jones Jr of his father to him. There is a strained relationship between them yet clearly also a great deal of respect and love. A combination that would put either or both into a space other than that to which they are accustomed. And so it does.
No. CRUSADE isn't the best, but it is perfect.
RAIDERS takes the crown as the best of the three tho I do have a soft spot for TEMPLE - it went to a truly dark place, but for that same reason some of the silliness was especially out of place.
And yes I do mean "best of the THREE". SKULL does not even deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as RAIDERS, TEMPLE or CRUSADE, unless it is to spit.
After all, SKULL's single greatest achievement was to give a new generation their own "JUMP THE SHARK"... I refer of course to "NUKE THE FRIDGE" - hence the mushroom cloud.
Or is that the boffo deluxe collectors' pack?
We played the Indiana Jones theme in high school marching band (yep, showing my age here) and I can semi-authoratatively say it's "dum da-da dum, dum de dummm, dum da-da dum, dum de dum dum dum" for a bit, but it's the "DUM diddidah DUM DUM DUM diddiDAAAAAAAA" bit later that's the most fun.
<-- no tequila icon, unless this is a LARGE shot with LOTS of salt on the rim
Thanks to some quick thinking and a bottle of scotch I was able to remove the memory of that movie. I have since replaced it with the south park episode that so eloquently summarised everyone's feelings about that movie and what speilberg/lucas did to a treasured boyhood movie icon.
